UPDATED: MAY 10, 2012 This was a special version aged in whisky cask. Nice head, love the whisky overtones, rich flavour, with plenty of depth. Definitely one to try again and again.

Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sweet finish, brown sugar, light mocha, light tang. Very good beer. I’m happy to drink this.
